Cuz you are you such a burden
But you're the weight above my shoulders
And even though I'm hurtin'
It still feels like each time I'm growing
When I thought that we'd grow up and grow together at the same time
Guess I passed you by
At that old stop sign
At that old stop sign
The last day, the final time, the fat lady has sung and most likely hiked. The full camp Monday morning stop sign hike has come to an end. With a promise to the park service that starting April 1 no hike from the ridge would have more than 11 campers, the signature hike that has taken place every Monday since the start of Fitness Ridge, the hike that has made campers whimper and cry, and has brought joy and pain to every single camper who has ever gotten on those vans and headed to the park ceased to exist. You can still do the hike every day you are at the ridge, you just will never again get to do it with each and every fellow camp mate. So here are some pictures from us defeating that old lady one last time. It was a fun day. We dragged young Jennifer, from Nashville, on her 8th day at the ridge, all the way to the top.
Deb, the hiking guide extraordinaire, walking up the hill with a camper. Up to 190 marathons completed and a promise to be on the tri course inspiring me on Saturday.
Not something you see very often this high up the hill, but always nice to see smiling faces on the hike. Emily from NY and Nicole from LA
powering up the hill.
nothing but satisfaction.
So I told Jennifer that she would surely be cussing me out before the hike was over and for the record that happened for the first time about a 1/4 mile on to the road. But to her credit I think she only cussed me out one time and that was more of a joke. Not sure it's the best way to spend the day before your 23rd birthday but it will make for a memorable day.
Jen with John, who joined the 60 minute club by getting to the top in 60 minutes.Quite a feat. Mix in that he owns candy and popcorn stores in Michigan and lets just say that when he finishes the tri on Saturday he should probably send a thank you package of of my kind of triathlon .......cheese, caramel, and butter flavored to Madison.
